Division of Ophthalmology & Optometry
Our Division of Ophthalmology and Optometry is comprised of comprehensive multispecialty eye practices featuring twelve ophthalmologists and five optometrists dedicated to providing the highest quality eye care in San Diego County. Together, our division provides the full spectrum of eye care for our patients, ranging from comprehensive dilated eye exams to ongoing medical and surgical management of complex eye diseases in both children and adults. Our patients can be assured that they are being treated by some of the most highly trained and experienced specialists in the region. We perform approximately 2500 eye surgical procedures per year, in addition to thousands of office and laser procedures, making us one of the busiest subspecialties at Scripps Clinic.
To meet the growing needs of our patient base, our Division offers extended office hours, including convenient early morning as well as some evening and Saturday appointments, at six locations throughout San Diego.
In addition to providing expert patient care, we are committed to advancing the medical world’s understanding of eye diseases and their treatments. A number of our clinicians are active investigators through clinical trials testing new medications and devices for eye disease. We also are involved in basic science research on eye development and disease through Scripps Research and the Lowy Medical Research Institute.
